For the 2024 model year, Mini shifts out of pandemic-induced supply constraints by more than doubling the number of models to be offered with its 6-speed manual transmission, Mini announced last week.
Limited to just the Mini Cooper three-door hardtop last year, the 6-speed manual notches into all of the signature Mini Cooper models for 2024, including the three-door hardtop, convertible, and five-door hardtops. The larger Mini Clubman and largest Mini Countryman will stick with either an 8-speed automatic transmission or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic.
Each of the three Mini models—Cooper, Clubman, and Countryman—can be had in three variants, including the base Cooper, Cooper S, and John Cooper Works performance series. To continue the taxonomy, the All4 designation stands for all-wheel drive. For 2024, Mini reintroduces the base Classic trim to join the Signature and top Iconic trim across all three model types. Then there are all the special editions, including the Untamed Edition on the Countryman, Untold Edition on the Clubman, and the Resolute Edition on the Cooper.
Mini features a range of powertrains, from a 1.5-liter turbo-3 to the all-electric Cooper SE to the 301-hp 2.0-liter turbo-4 John Cooper Works. All Minis come with 3 years or 36,000 miles of complimentary scheduled maintenance and a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty.
Here’s the model lineups and what’s new for the three core models, and their prices for 2024, which increase about $2,400 across base models.
